Cindy prides herself on having a diverse area of practice, ranging from employment matters and breach of contract disputes, to legal malpractice and other types of business and commercial litigation. Over the course of her career, Cindy has secured hundreds of significant recoveries and victories for her clients, including most recently, following a six-day bench trial, a $1,000,000 award (including an award of punitive damages) involving two hotel housekeepers who were sexually harassed by their supervisor.

As an attorney, Cindy has been recognized by her peers as a “Rising Star” for several consecutive years, an elite award reserved for less than 2.5% of practicing attorneys in California. In addition, Cindy’s former clients have publicly recognized her professionalism, thoroughness, responsiveness, and ability to explain what is going on with their cases. Cindy is especially proud to represent employees, many of whom have never been involved in the legal process, and help them seek and ultimately secure justice when they have been wronged in the workplace.
